An award-winning chef fighting a rare form of eye cancer is using National Afternoon Tea Week as a chance to raise money for the ward at Sheffield’s Hallamshire Hospital which is saving his sight.
The specialist eye cancer unit in Sheffield was the nearest to Tim Bilton, of the Spiced Pear at Hepworth, near Holmfirth when he discovered he was suffering from retinoblastoma.
Tim will be donating £1 from every afternoon tea sold at his Yorkshire tea rooms during National Afternoon Tea Week, which runs until Sunday.
“I have a lot to thank the Royal Hallamshire for,” said Tim, whose rare form of cancer was discovered during a routine GP visit last year,
“I hope the money raised will show our support for the fantastic work they do.”
The Spiced Pear is planning more fundraising events for the hospital.
